    yeah, the cure for salmon also good for sea trout. I quite often do a brandade but with a herb salt with coley end pieces (cheap and sustainable, yeah!)

    one I did for Christmas last year was with molasses. Really worked. Just painted on before an 80/20 salt brown sugar cure

The outside will be a bright purple while the inside of the salmon is orange. beautiful and very tasty
    This is dope.

    Do you (or anyone else who vac's their cured fish) seal it at 100%?

    My go to is 2:1 salt to sugar in the raw with fennel pollen, coriander and dill. Cure for 48hr and cold smoke.

    I use the basic salt/sugar cure but substitute shiso leaf for the dill. Much brighter flavor.
